DoDebate – A Method for the Public Debate

DoDebate – A Method for the Public Debate  is the innovative “advisory lab” created to effectively guide the actions and choices of all the players in a process of participatory democracy, with a specific focus on the tool of the Public Debate and its implications in terms of decision-making for the great public works and infrastructures.


About Participatory Democracy

The term participatory democracy is intended to indicate that phenomenon through which private individuals are given the opportunity to take part in public choices. In this sense, participatory democracy is defined as an interaction (within public procedures, above all administrative, but also regulatory) between companies and institutions, which aspires to obtain a unitary result shared by all parties. Participation, at the basis of this form of democracy, aims to reduce the distance between the public decision-maker and the recipients of the decision itself.


Approaching the Future

DoDebate – A Method for the Public Debate intervenes in the area within which participatory democracy has developed the most: that is, in the urban and environmental sector, generating those tools for evaluation and action, which are indispensable whenever the institution finds itself making choices concerning the management of the territory.

Culture, technology, information are the basis of the project communication process that DoDebate – A Method for the Public Debate puts in place every time a moment of participatory democracy is activated.

Creating projects that communicate and self-communicate is a constant and open challenge, because “knowing guarantees full freedom to choose and decide”.
